The Three Best Moments From the ‘Better Call Saul’ Premiere
TV

Though much of the nation was focused on last night’s Grammys, AMC had a blockbuster night of its own.

First came the explosive, gore-filled midseason premiere of The Walking Dead, which left more than a few fans upset. Then came the premiere of Better Call Saul, the Breaking Bad spinoff starring Bob Odenkirk that always seemed more like fan fantasy — like a Lost starring Ben and Locke.

Last night, that fantasy became a reality. More

Stuff I shout at the TV – ‘Scandal’ recap – ‘Flesh and Blood’
TV

Last night’s episode of “Scandal” started with panic in the air. The wheels were in motion on a bombing meant to take out the president of the United States being orchestrated by Maria Wallace (AKA Olivia Pope’s mom) and some dude from Russia. Because no matter how many countries America may go to war with, there will never be a better super-villain accent than Russian.

Stuff I Shout at the TV: ‘Scandal’ recap – ‘The Fluffer’
TV

“Scandal” now sits just a few weeks away from its season finale, the point in the year where shows usually start slamming the accelerator and amping up the intensity. If you watch “Scandal,” you know that its intensity meter was already pretty maxed out, so this should be fun. Last night’s episode, titled “The Fluffer,” did not disappoint. It was full of intrigue, tension, and, of course, a giant heap of ridiculous moments. Here’s a few things it left me shouting at the television.

Stuff I shout at the TV: Scandal – ‘Mama Said Knock You Out’
TV

When last night’s episode of “Scandal,” titled “Mama Said Knock You Out,” opened, the president and his family were one hour away from a live TV interview with some guy named Noah who apparently had been given the character description of “total douche face.” Olivia Pope had come to tell Noah they needed to push the interview back and he had flipped out because who is the president to be pushing back an interview that’s been scheduled for two weeks? It seems a bit unfair because the answer to that question is, ya know, he’s the president of the United States, and sometimes stuff comes up last minute. More

Denial. It’s the first step of the grieving process.

Last week’s episode of “Scandal” ended with the camera trained on Jake Ballard as he fired a bullet into the head of either US Attorney David Rosen or White House Press Secretary James Novak, but cut to black before we knew whose head. Because we never actually saw them die, I’ve spent the last week telling myself that maybe they both survived. That maybe it was a camera trick and they’re going to make it.

Shoshanna’s 5 best insults on Sunday’s episode of ‘Girls’
TV

“Beach House,” the aptly named seventh episode of this “Girls” season, takes place in a Long Island home that serves as the Sartrean setting for the unraveling of Marnie’s latest plan: a female bonding sesh. Unfortunately, the weekend barely resembles what uptight Marnie imagined, and while it’s unclear if the foursome were able to prove to everyone “via Instagram” that they “can still have fun as a group,” it’s obvious that the subterranean relationships between these women do exist – even if the girls need to carve each other’s hearts out with razor-sharp words.
